Deo Gratias

"If the only prayer you ever say in your life is thank you, it will be enough." - Meister Eckhart

Colleen, from her inspiring blog Thoughts on Grace, hosts this wonderful meme each Wednesday. She says, "Deo Gratias is Latin for Thanks be to God. Remembering to give thanks for all of our blessings, big & small, helps us to find God in our everyday moments and gives us an attitude of gratitude!"

Each week, I join Colleen in remembering & sharing the many blessings in my life. This is such a great exercise for me, helping me to focus on the good that truly is happening in my life, no matter how many trials & stresses I may have.
1) Matt's guardian angel was watching over him yesterday when he car stalled in the middle of a busy intersection. I called the local police dept. & one of their officers met him there, then helped push him to a safe location. Deo Gratias! 

2) We just got a new internet service...decently priced & much faster! Deo Gratias! 

3) Because of the new internet service, we were able to change our living room around to a better layout. I really like it!  Deo Gratias! 

4) Today's weather is gorgeous...mid 70s & a nice breeze blowing through the windows. Deo Gratias! 

5) Yesterday morning, while The Prophet had a meeting w/ our deacon for Confirmation, I spent some time w/ Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Deo Gratias!
